Sachs Media Group accepting an Award of DistinctionTHE FLORIDA PUBLIC RELATIONS ASSOCIATION recently named Sachs Media Group and The Florida Bar statewide winners of an Award of Distinction for the campaign “Protect Florida Democracy: Our Constitution. Our Rights. Our Courts.” When Florida convened its Constitution Revision Commission, which happens every 20 years, this mostly appointed body had the unique authority to place proposed amendments directly on the ballot. These recommendations had the potential to disrupt the independence of the judicial branch, especially with low citizen awareness and interest. The Protect Florida Democracy campaign helped increase awareness and educate voters about the revision process and the importance of a fair and impartial judiciary. “This aggressive, thoughtful campaign resulted in no amendments targeting the judiciary or altering the balance of powers,” said Ron Sachs, CEO and founder of Sachs Media Group. ”In our 24 years of work for clients, partnering with The Florida Bar to protect Florida democracy is in the top tier of the most important campaigns we’ve ever been privileged to do.”
